what the cat saw
What Parsifal Saw collects work produced by artist Ron Rege, Jr. following the release of 2012’s acclaimed opus, The Cartoon Utopia (which is being re-released in paperback this season). Rege’s interest in esoteric ideas and spirituality has permeated into all aspects of his work, as highlighted by “Cosmogenesis,” his adaptation of selections from the writings of 19th century occultist Helena Petrovna Blavatsky. “Cosmogenesis” concerns the magical, alchemical, ancient, and mysterious ideas that strongly influenced The Cartoon Utopia as well. Rege’s work continues to a cosmic consciousness, psychedelia, outsider rawness, and pure cartoonish joy.
